Monaghan cruises to a second term

Kitimat Municipal Elections held November 19, 2011 final results.

Joanne Monaghan was returned as mayor Saturday in a landslide.

She polled 1,356 votes, more than double her nearest challenger and more than the other three candidates combined.

Randy Halyk picked up 618 votes, Jim Thom 304 and Danny Nunes 85.

In the council race three incumbents were returned and one defeated.

Corinne Scott, who got on to council in a by-election 12 months ago, topped the polls with 1,580, nearly 200 clear of her nearest rival.

That was newcomer Edwin Empinado – he also ran in that 2010 by-election – who received 1,403.

Incumbent Mario Feldhoff got 1,320, newcomer Phil Germuth 1,294, newcomer Mary Murphy 1,247 and incumbent Rob Goffinet (1,167) took the final spot.

The also rans were Carl Whicher (1,099), incumbent Bob Corless (876), Jack Riddle (633), Joshua Callahan (537), Joe Salema (490) and John Pacheco (354).

These results are unofficial for now but the final confirmation is not expected to result in any significant changes.

A total of 2,426 ballots were cast which translates to a 56 per cent turnout, identical to the 2008 election.
